If you want to make it big on Twitter, you will find thousands of different pieces of advice to achieve it. One point, which appears particularly often is the power of consistent and sustainable tweeting – no matter what.
Given the dynamic and liveliness of Twitter this is not something to be achieved easily. So let me therefore introduce you to a new Twitter App called Buffer, which will help you accomplish exactly that in the easiest possible way.
Buffer lets you add many tweets at once and then spreads them out over the course of the day. You can put 10 tweets into your Buffer and the app will in return tweet them well spread out over the course of the day.
Step 1: Throw a few tweets in your Buffer
The easiest way to put tweets into your Buffer is by using one of the browser extensions. Whenever you come across an article you like, you click the Buffer icon.
Then Buffer, by default, suggests you the text and the link of the site you are on. You can edit the tweet some more or simply hit “add to Buffer” right away.
See an example of Ann’s post below:
Step 2: What happens when I buffered tweets?
Once you “added to Buffer” your tweet is scheduled for you in your Buffer account. It will go out to your followers during the day.
Buffer makes it super simple as you can set fixed daily tweeting times. There is no need to schedule each tweet individually, like you would do with other tweet scheduling services.
You can always change your daily tweeting times. Here are mine:
Step 3: Track your impact
Buffer has also just launched an analytics feature, which will help you to track the impact for your tweets. It shows you the retweets of all your tweets sent via Buffer. The service will have click rate and other handy insights ready real soon too.
Why would I want to use Buffer?
If you are having similar habits like me, reading many great blogposts every day and trying to get the most out of Twitter, Buffer is a must have for your toolkit.
What really differentiates Buffer to other Twitter Apps, is that adding and buffering tweets is super simple. Yet you share great articles with your followers consistently all day.
I also want to point out that Buffer is no “instead of Tweetdeck or Hootsuite” tool. It’s main purpose is to maintain a more consistent personality on Twitter.
You should try out Buffer and let me know your views below. I am very curious if you find it useful too.
